Maroondah Journal: Anger at park sale proposal

By July 31, 2007No Comments

The evaluation of Maroondah’s parks and open space is continuing with the Maroondah Journal reporting on the current proposal to potentially sell council land located at 7-9 Bedford Road in Ringwood, a block that consists of play equipment.

Cr Alex Makin said the decision to sell the land would be made at the next council meeting. “There is still an opportunity for people to make their voice heard. It does help to add impact to written submissions.”

On Monday the 6th of August, a committee of council, consisting of myself, the mayor Cr. Peter Gurr and the ward councillor Natalie Thomas, will be hearing verbal submissions in regard to this park. The verbal submission process allows anyone who issued a written submission to reinforce their comments in regard to the future of 7-9 Bedford Road.

The committee will provide a recommendation to council, where the decision regarding the future of this park will be made at a full council meeting.

While the submission period has formally closed I would encourage anyone who holds concerns over the park at 7-9 Bedford Road to contact Council. I am more happy to receive such submissions and be contacted via email on alex.makin@maroondah.vic.gov.au.
